Nursing as a profession has a strong focus on the health care of the person, the family, and the community. It supports and sustains the promotion and maintenance of health. A generally extended life span, emergence of new diseases, growing awareness of health care and new medical technologies and research, have called for new expectations and expanding needs on the nursing and health care professionals.
